Matt Boyle wanted to buy my boat sight unseen and have it shipped directly to his made up family in NT.
It was all to good to be true, he starts off by telling you he is on a gas rig in New Zealand on 15 days on 15 days off.
Buying the boat for his family as a present, he will organise transport via his courier company, who does he think he or she is kidding. He wanted me to pay the courier fee of $1300, this money was then transfered to a western union account, at the same time he deposits the sale price of the boat plus the courier fee into my bank account.
Remember the name.......Matthew Boyle
